State Officials: Hurricane Preparedness is Serious Business
Hurricane season starts in June and more than 13-hundred people are gearing up at the Governor’s annual Hurricane Conference.
Department of Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon says while this year’s hurricane forecast is slightly lower than normal, that doesn’t mean citizens should spend any less effort getting prepared.
Koon says it doesn’t matter what the forecast is, because even if just one hurricane hits Florida, it could have devastating effects. He reminds citizens to make a plan, and talk to their friends and family about what their plan will be if a hurricane comes.
